Tyler from AAG writes: "Let me be very clear: I love Platinum Games. Hideki Kamiya and his team have made consistently entertaining and engaging titles in the past from cult hits like Okami, Viewtiful Joe and God Hand to the more popular Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance and Bayonetta. Not too surprising since the aforementioned director wrote the book on hack and slash combat action games, it was called Devil May Cry. Each title has boasted visceral and satisfying combat systems, iconic and impressive boss battles and set pieces, and Kamiya’s special brand of quirky off color humor.
The Wonderful 101, which was originally pitched as a massive Nintendo mascot crossover team-up game, has a lot of expectations to meet with such pedigree and skill behind the wheel. It has to not only be a solid action game, but be a system seller for the Wii U as well as put an effort towards destroying the idea that Nintendo’s newest console doesn’t have any original games. Much like the group of the title, there are some minor things that get in the way of these goals, but when brought together, the result is pure ecstasy."
